PBS and Crash Course

I thought this article from recode was completely awesome. As I am an avid lover and support of PBS, I think the idea of bringing the “Crash Course” videos to PBS is complete genius!

From the article (written by Dawn Chmielewski) “Creators John and Hank Green — known as the Vlogbrothers — agreed to distribute their educational video library through PBS’s YouTube network as well as into the classroom through PBS LearningMedia, an on-demand digital service that’s free to educators nationwide. The videos become available in January.” I wonder what would happen if John and Hank Green expanded their videos from the High School realm into higher education. It is an idea, right?!

I have always found John Green’s videos to be quite entertaining, although I must admit I haven’t read any of his novels yet. Hmmm, something for me to do over the Christmas break.
